According to Showvaker, all the equipment he needs to operate his tree care company has been stolen. Missing items include a $180 climbing line, various rigging and specialty ropes, a GPS and a mobile credit card processing machine.
A 9news.com report mentioned that Showvaker and his family have already been struggling financially due to medical bills related to the premature birth of their twins earlier this year. One of them passed away at just 8 weeks old.
“I was sick to my stomach, you know. I was angry,” Showvake told 9news.com. “I have a lot of mouths to feed and it’s shock, disbelief, anger. At one point, I just laid down on the street [when] I realized they took everything I need to rig and remove trees.”
To help with the missing equipment and financial setback, TCIA asks that you contact I & E Specialties Tree Care at (303) 809-3350 to inquire about donations. You may also visit their Facebook page and website to learn more about how you can help.
